Frustration in studio today! Instead of improving them, I killed off two paintings. Next, I accidentally bumped into my turret where my paint medium sitting. The bottle fell over and broke causing the oil to ooze all over the floor. After clean up, i tried to get back to painting but I instead knocked my steaming hot coffee all over the floor. Another clean up session. Decided to go home and drink wine at this point!
I have recently discovered the British artist Emma Rodgers and her ceramic figures. I love the sense of movement and wonderful texture she gets with her pieces. This is something I have been after for quite a while in my work. Here is a pretty sad response to this discovery, but at least it's a start.
This is me at the gallery opening for the "Trashformations" show at the Silver Circle Studio. I am with non-other than Carroll Spinney who played Big Bird on Sesame Street and his original Oscar the Grouch puppet! Behind us is my dragon hanging for the ceiling.
